I'm assuming the engine ran before this procedure was done.

  1. Be sure No. 1 piston remains at the TDC on the firing stroke and the key on the crankshaft is in the 12 o'clock position.
  2. Position the chain on the guide rail and swing the chain inward and to the left.
  3. Engage the chain on the crankshaft gear and install the camshaft sprockets into the chain.
  4. The sprocket, on the intake camshaft for cylinder bank 1-4, has a sender pin. With the arrow pointing up, align the pin in the middle of the slots, then install the camshaft sprockets. Remove tool No. 11-3-420 and remove the crankshaft holder.
  5. Install the chain tensioner piston, spring and cap plug, but do not tighten.
  6. To bleed the chain tensioner, fill the oil pocket located on the upper timing housing cover with engine oil and move the tensioner back and forth with a suitable prytool until oil is expelled at the cap plug, then tighten the cap plug securely.

Check the terminals that contact the bulbs, make sure they are clean and making good contact, also if make sure the assembly isn't a knock off version, a lot of the cheap unit use very cheap tin and doesn't serve well as a conductive unit.

1998 bmw 740il will not start even with new a battery


If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK
